Now this is how you hire a manager - seasoned, progressed through the system. Not by picking a name out of a hat of fan favorites who never coached.
The better way to do it is to steal a guy like Maddon from TB. That worked very well with a guy named Al Lopez when we stole him from the Indians in 1957.
